A security guard shot and wounded a motorist Tuesday night who was dragging his partner at a housing development in Crafton Heights, city police said.

The shooting occurred shortly after 9 p.m. at the development on Woodlow Street where the security guards had cited the motorist for defiant trespass and were holding him for Pittsburgh police, city police Lt. Daniel M. Herrmann said.

Before city police arrived, the security guards told detectives, the motorist began to drive away, dragging one of the guards along the street. His partner then shot the motorist in the arm, Herrmann said.

No other information was immediately available.
